The Walk" is a song by English rock band The Cure, released as a stand-alone single in July 1983. It later appeared on the compilation album Japanese Whispers. It was recorded when the band was briefly reduced to the two founding members Robert Smith and Lol Tolhurst following the departure of bassist Simon Gallup following the end of the band's previous tour in support of the album Pornography.

Between ‘82 and '84, the so-called Three Imaginary Boys were finished with Pornography and began taking their sound to The Top. In a manner of speaking, they were transforming as a band: the drummer started playing keys, the bassist left and came back, and Robert Smith extensively collaborated with Siouxsie and the Banshees. He and guitarist Steve Severin would release an album as The Glove in '83. The song peaked at in the UK, becoming their biggest hit to date
